Trip Report: Bordeaux, France

Visited: May 2019

The Bordeaux area is stunningly beautiful. We enjoyed 7 days on the ground, touring the city, chateaus and enjoyed great food. The areas we went to are:

  • The city of Bordeaux, including markets, several churches with tall spires and the Garonne River
  • Medoc, an area known for its Cabernet Sauvignon-based wine
  • St. Emilion, a Merlot-favoring territory
  • Numerous chateaus

We organized the trip using Bordeaux Wine Trails and AirBnB. BWT was the best, but the young lady we used twice for AirBnB was good, too. For me, it was a photographic extravaganza. I hauled 30 lbs of gear on my back everywhere we went. It was worth it. Take a look.
